Patience. Lao Tzu’s “Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles, and the water is clear?” What a wonderful definition of patience!
Yes, I need to learn to “adopt the pace of nature” because “my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety.”
Thanks Wendy for choosing three quotes about patience.

“Adopt the pace of nature;
her secret is patience.”

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“When I run after ehat I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”

~ Rumi

“Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles,
and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?

~ Lao Tzu (Toa Te Ching)
